So another week and another awesome tune for you. This time from a guy I’ve been keeping an eye on for some time now. I first came across ‘Murlo‘ back at the beginning of last year and was instantly hooked by his fresh, boundary breaking takes on classic dancehall tracks in the ever more popular Bashment and Soca genres. I’ve played his remixes of Beenie Man’s ‘Dude‘ and Vybz Kartel’s ‘Tek Buddy Gyal‘ a lot over the last year and can’t seem to keep my hands off everything he’s been bustin’ out since.
The remixed track below is a prime example of how Murlo manages to extrude electronic and future garage sounds into the realms of a fresh and unknown Soca sound that is the most original hybrid styling i’ve heard in a long time – if that makes any sense! I think it does. Anyhow enjoy.
